Abstract/Contents:"A report is given here on preliminary studies on the use of blast-furnace slag. It is material which is characterized by particles in the 0.5 - 3.0 mm range, great permeability, a high pH (8.5 - 8.7) and a very high K[2O content (98-112 mg/110 g), a bulk density of 750 g/litre, and good water retention. But resistance to weathering and mechanical strength are admittedly poor, so that this material is not suitable for areas subject to heavy wear. In a growth test phytotoxic effects did not occur, although growth was clearly slower than on quartz sand. This retardation was hardly apparent in a mixture of slag and sand. The conclusion is that the slag is suitable for the physical amelioration of heavy soils or for use with quartz sand and organic moisture-holding materials to make a soil for turf not intended for heavy wear."
